OVERVIEW

The Department of Teacher Education at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor of Teacher Education specializing in Social Foundations and Cultural Studies to begin September, 2022. This is a full-time, limited term appointment.

The University of St. Thomas embraces diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity for all. Our convictions of dignity, diversity and personal attention call us to embody and champion a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. We welcome applicants of diverse races, ethnicities, geographic origins, gender identities, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, religions, work experience, physical and intellectual abilities, and financial means. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. This commitment is consistent with our mission: Inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, the University of St. Thomas educates students to think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good.

The School of Education prepares transformative teachers and leaders to positively impact students' lives. The School of Education actively seeks to attract, retain, and develop faculty, staff, and students from all backgrounds to enhance the diversity of the learning community, and to offer our students richly varied perspectives.

Established in 1885, the University of St. Thomas is located in the major metropolitan area of Minneapolis-St. Paul and is Minnesota's largest private university. Its 10,000 students pursue degrees in a wide range of liberal arts, professional, and graduate programs. A recent study found the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area population grew nearly 8% from 2010 – 2017. Census data also shows that Minnesota continues to grow more diverse, both racially and ethnically, and at a faster pace than in the broader United States.
